Nice! composition and performance except for:
too much reverb on the lower frequencies, needs dampened.
too even volume on held notes. In Cubase I would simply draw the expression control in with a pencil dipping it in the middle of long notes as if the musician was turning away slightly then back. If you use only notation perhaps this doesn't mean a lot to you.
Nicely done. As a horn player there aren't a lot of horn pieces I hear that I actually think sound good and would also be playable by real horns - this one is a welcomed exception. My only concern is a few of the highest notes (sound like they are in the written horn pitch of high A or B?) mihgt be so high that the blend would be difficult.
I do think the recording could use a bit more of the bass horn parts to achieve a better balance against the top part(s).
This is a pleasant surprise, yes not enough horn pieces posted i agree. I love horns and there is lots of good stuf in this piece. I was not even a minute into listening before quickly deciding to download to my desktop, and continued listening confirmed this was a very good choice the make. Very nice work, Jay!
